Up for Bid- OGK Cobra Grips

*** Grips are SOLD***
I should have posted the stuff up first on my own site, but Oh well. I have up for bid here a pair of used vintage OGK Cobra Grips that came off my 1986 Bridgestone MB-1. They show signs of age but are in good shape.

I made my mind up that I was going to repalce the grip with Ergon GP1 or the Ergon GP1-Biokork. I think both grips would be in keeping with the sprit of the OGK Cobra Grips and the look of the old school MB-1.

I will also be selling the Suntour XC Pro pedals that came on the bike. I think they just need to be cleaned and packed with new grease. I can not see myself using flat pedals. So why keep them when it can help fund the project!

Is There Something More Important Than Riding?

Well you bet there is! I am sure there are a lot of great causes out there that people can get involved with and we should involve ourselfs with things at are bigger than us.

I am under the opinion that outdoor programs are great for providing education and self discovery. With that I would like for you to check out here. If you go down the page you will see he following videos "Why We Are Here".

Part 1

I think that video gives you a great idea why these outdoor programs are great for the Vets. I have spent a lot of time this year listening and helping my fellow Warriors get the help that they need.

Here is just a small part of a film of the expedition.
